Victoria house description

On a quiet, tree-lined street close to downtown Victoria, North Cottage is a bright and cozy suite with a private entrance and decks with views across treetops to the mountains. Inside you'll find an equipped kitchen, full bathroom with a deep soaker tub, bedroom garret and sitting room.

Lots of natural light fills the suite, on the full top floor of a 1930s character house. We are a two-minute walk to the the park on the water and a network of walking and cycling paths, and a frequent bus to downtown is a short block away.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2001

                  About the owner: Your hosts are Randy and Louise. Having travelled extensively all over the world we recognize good accommodation when we see it and we're happy to offer this piece of our comfortable home. Our life's philosophy is simple: Walk softly, care generously, speak kindly and love deeply. Northcott Avenue is robustly community-oriented and along with our neighbors we are involved in the growth and development of the larger community of Victoria West, and the arts community of Victoria.

                  Why the Owner Chose Victoria:
                  We chose this house because we rely on our bicycles to get us to work, town and picnics by the beach, and the nearby Galloping Goose Trail gets us there quickly without the stress of traffic. We have cycled routes in and around Victoria, the interior of BC, England and France and parts of South East Asia.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Everything we need is within walking distance.
